Millions of people around the world, especially youth, are fighting to prevent and adapt to climate change: pushing to end fossil fuel extraction and use, and for clean energy jobs, conservation of natural habitats, indigenous fire management, resilience hubs, affordable housing, and racial justice, among other solutions. However, we can sometimes feel paralyzed by climate fear, anger, and grief. It requires intention to imagine a future where all people and ecosystems can survive and thrive, to create the future we want to live in.

With this in mind, the California Coastal Commission challenges you to answer the question:


Enter your video anytime between OCTOBER 1, 2022 and MAY 31, 2023, 5:00pm.

How to Enter (PDF or Word)

Video will be a maximum of three minutes long. Enter on your own, or as a group of no more than five film makers. (You might have more people involved in the project—for instance, you might have more actors—but the “film maker” is the person or people primarily responsible for the project who will be recognized if the video is chosen as a winner.) If entering as a group, one person must be designated as the main contact to answer any questions and receive the contest prize on behalf of the others if your video is chosen. Pick a film maker who’s good at responding promptly to email, and be sure to use an email you will check during the summer! We’ll also need a mailing address for that person, for mailing the prize if your video is chosen. Film makers must be middle school or high school level students in California, in school or homeschooled. You may enter as part of a class project or independently. Winners will be announced by the end of June, so keep in touch after school ends if you are entering as part of a class project.
